The Cowboys have made it official: they are returning to Oxnard, California, for training camp, starting on July 21. Fans will be able to attend practice, starting on July 22 with safety protocol details to be announced later. "I view the team's return to Oxnard as a very positive sign that the Cowboys and the NFL are moving one big step closer toward the traditional camp, preseason and regular season experience that we have been accustomed to for generations," owner and GM Jerry Jones said.
Here is a breakdown of Micah Parsons' four-year deal with the Cowboys: Total - $17.079 million (fully guaranteed) Signing bonus - $9.781 million 2021 base - $660,000 2022 base - $1.436 million 2023 base - $2.212 million 2024 base - $2.989 million The rookie linebacker has looked the part during OTAs and minicamp.
When training camp starts in July, Dak Prescott will open as a full participant, according to Mike McCarthy. "We're not naïve," the coach said. "Let's take any player that comes back from an injury, especially a major joint injury. That first year back there's going to be some things you have to work through, but I would anticipate to start with him in full mode and get him into the team periods and just get back to playing football."
John Fassel will not be at the Cowboys minicamp this week following the death of his father, Jim, a long-time NFL coach. Fassel's assistant, Matt Daniels will run the special teams' portions of practice. "John's as big of a family man as we have here and our heart goes out to him and his family right now," Mike McCarthy said. "John's love for his family and especially his father, Jim, he's shared many stories just in our short time together."
